Indiana law gives courts the authority to order the Indiana BMV to suspend a motorist’s driving privileges when he or she is found to have committed certain traffic violations.
Indiana drivers are required to provide proof of financial responsibility to the BMV after being involved in accidents or for certain traffic violations. If a driver receives a notice from the BMV requesting proof of financial responsibility, only the insurance provider is authorized to submit proof of insurance to the BMV.
The BMV's Driver Safety Program is available through classroom instruction, online, or by video/DVD.
Indiana drivers involved in accidents and those who have received convictions for traffic offenses may be required to submit one or more forms to the BMV.
Indiana law dictates that the courts or the BMV may suspend the driving privileges of a driver when he or she is found to have committed certain traffic violations or failed to file required documentation. Mandatory suspensions can be the result of a court order or a legislative mandate that requires the BMV to take action on a driver’s record.
Indiana law assesses a point value for most traffic-related convictions. Point values for offenses range from two to eight points, depending on the seriousness of the violation. Points stay active on an individual’s driving record for two years from the conviction date of the violation.
The BMV’s new Reinstatement Relief Program offers a 50% discount for any reinstatement fees incurred prior to July 1, 2013 for operating a motor vehicle without financial responsibility (insurance), as long as those fees are paid by December 31, 2014, at which time all fees will return to their full amount. BMV fees assessed on or after July 1, 2013, and fees imposed by courts, are not included in this program.
